Scalia on Law School

“It seems to me that the law-school-in-two-years proposal rests on the premise that law school is—or ought to be—a trade school,” the justice said. “It is not that. It is a school preparing men and women not for a trade but for a profession—-the profession of law.”

It is something of an open secret now that the second and third years of school offer a student the chance to study whatever strikes his or her fancy—so long as there is a professor who has the same fancy… In more than a few law schools, including some of the most prestigious (the University of Chicago, for example), it is possible to graduate without ever having studied the First Amendment.
